Giveaway & Review~ Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a
new forbidden STANDALONE romance!



What happens when the one you want is the only one you can't have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I'd accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem...especially since THE ONE wasn't Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.
Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language.
Only appropriate for adult readers
age 18+.

Penelope Ward has done it again with a taboo, forbidden romance. Sins of Sevin was different, a very different story from anything I have read recently but not a bad different. The story of Sevin and Evangeline stole me from the very first pages.

The idea in this book that I loved the most was that you just can't help who you love. Sevin couldn't control his feelings anymore than you or I could and I truly enjoyed that aspect of this book because it made this story very real and with a ton of feels. \

Sevin has lived his life for the most part with the void of love. When the oppurtunity of a lifetime is 

presented by an old family friend, with the contingency that Sevin excepts Elle, Evangeline's little 

sister, as his wife, it's not a chance Sevin can turn down. But feelings and do what's right don't always

 add up. Falling in love with your betrothed's sister is not what was expected and definitely a situation

 that Sevin has no control over. 

I don't want to give too much. This book had many plot twists and a great climax. I really enjoyed the 

dynamic this book brought. This author did a great job with the flow of the story. She also did a great

 job with the realness of the characters. I felt like I could relate to them on many levels. 

Penelope Ward always seems to WOW me. Sevin and his Sins were no different. Looking for edgy,

 real and a bit forbidden, look no further. Sins of Sevin holds it all!

He quietly followed me into the dining room, carrying the flatware. The tension in the air was thick as he walked behind me around the oval table, setting down silverware after each plate I’d put down. It was like some weird game of musical chairs where awkward silence replaced the music. The hairs on my back stiffened. We weren’t saying anything, but it was as if I could feel the weight of a thousand words along with the heat of his body so close behind me.
When I noticed he’d just put a fork where the spoon was supposed to go, I switched it. “The forks go on this side, actually.” My hand was shaking. I couldn’t believe how little control I had over myself.
Noticing my nerves, he suddenly placed his hand over mine and whispered, “Stop.”
Chills ran through me. My heart started to beat faster. My nipples hardened. I hated my body for responding to him with equal amounts of fear and lust.
I turned to him, his hand still over my knuckles. It felt like I couldn’t breathe as he just looked at me.
My mother’s footsteps caused Sevin to move his hand off mine with lightning speed.
Mama entered, and we continued setting the table as if our stolen moment hadn’t happened.
